We got the chance to take a look at one of those sweet, sweet “Black Series” edition Star Wars figured from Hasbro – namely, the Kylo Ren model. Kylo Ren, the main antagonist featured in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, wields raw Force abilities and an equally raw cross blade light saber forged from a very old Sith design. The Hasbro figure has some great details, starting with his cloth cloak. The material doesn’t feel like the most expensive of fabric, but for a $19.99 retail value action figure, it is awesome. Also equally cool is that Kylo Ren comes packages with his iconic cross blade light saber, and the saber portion can be removed if you would like it displayed in its “off” state.

  • Excellent price point
  • Cloth cloak
  • Removable light saber blade

  • No accessories – especially no light saber holster hook

The biggest problem with the 6 inch Black Series Kylo Ren from Hasbro is that it does not come with any additional accessories that a dark knight of the First Order might need. Most glaringly is the lack of a light saber holster. Because the blade of the saber is removable, it would have been nice to holster the saber hilt for additional pose possibilities. Speaking of poses, this Kylo Ren has a lot of joint articulation, making the sheer number of poses impressive…. most impressive.

As a very nice side note, it appears that Hasbro has chosen to use a cloth or twine twist tie to fasten the action figure into the plastic packaging. This is to not scuff the figure as plastic and metal ties sometimes can do. I would recommend using scissors to cut the tie, however, as untying it by hand is very tricky.

Overall, the Hasbro 6-inch Black Series Kylo Ren action figure is a great addition to your collection or toy box and will be sure to make any Star Wars fan happy. It fits right in with the higher end “Black Series” figures from Hasbro and displays a terrific amount of detail to pour over. It retails for $19.99, with many places selling it on-sale, and is available now.
